I've had a rough week dealing with all sorts but a nice weekend has just sorted it out. Tales of upbeat news around us despite the crap being forced upon us are welcome all the time, but especially now to keep our spirits up.

Friday - met parents over from Lancashire and had a walk to the Tees Barrage, final top up of the tan of the year. Glorious autumn weather, warm t-shirt weather in the sun, fleece needed later.

Saturday - a trip out to Chadwick's in Maltby. Three course course meal with wine and espresso martini to finish.

Nice. I am hoping that is the starter.

I was hoping to see a Beano style "slap up meal", with an Everest style mountain of mash, and loads of bangers sticking out. Almost as good as a "cow pie", favoured by "Desperate" Dan.

runs away.  xD

Only moved here two years ago but feel at home already. The first year I couldn't understand people, not because of the accent, but the more rough and tumble approach compared to the northwest.

Next week is a three day week so I might join the hundreds of thousands we're told are thronging across some bridge in Whitby xD

Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to eat food without taking a photograph of it :ph34r:.

No, it’s what the germ ridden mouth breathers need to do, rather than coming over here spreading their mucky viruses.  o.O

not been out today but yesterday, the town was eerily quiet. Like it was in the lockdown level of quiet.

About time we got some return on our income tax and start that war we're still paying for then.

The half a runner bean cut up into sections is interesting. I prefer my peas to be crunchy and pea shaped. But glad that you had a good time.

It is a miserable time. The sunset this evening was gorgeous. Perfect in fact.

I like the idea of a Yorkshire village called Fuckoff, Fuckoffby, Fuckoffskirk or maybe even Fuckoffington. Seems appropriate somehow.

I was out for some work in one of the darker parts of Africa, and the only convenient accommodation was a very upmarket, but remote game lodge. Flew in, dropped bags off at the lodge and headed off into the bush for work. Came back after a strenuous day to be presented with a meal like the above. Tasted nice, gone in 2 seconds, but needed calories and volume, so we got the chef to cook up a mountain of chips and made chip butties washed down with beer and many £200 bottles of wine (one of the cheapest on the list).  Glad it was all on expenses.

Through this whole sorry mess I've been taking more pleasure in small things, which is good.

Eg the weather this year has been pretty wonderful. It's still warm enough to swim in the local river, and it's still possible to meet local friends in the pub for a drink and a laugh. I'm taking a more Zen approach to things, eg yesterday I spent about three hours mending my 1980s bicycle (had a problem with the Sturmey Archer gears) but actually quite enjoyed it.
